Avocado Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl

Avocado Ahi Tuna Poke BowlI cannot believe the first time I had a poke bowl was only a year ago. I’m actually a bit mad about it, because I’ve been missing out on this delicious dish all my life. It’s my new obsession, and if you like sushi and raw fish, you’ll love it as well.

Poke is a raw fish salad originating from Hawaii, so it makes sense that it’s popular in California and that’s where I discovered it. It’s savory and filled with umami, and the first time I had it, it felt like a combination of my favorite flavors melting in my mouth.

Avocado Ahi Tuna Poke BowlYou can enjoy your poke bowl just on its own, or over rice or cauliflower rice (if you are on my RESTART sugar detox). I’ve been feeling really great eating white rice so that’s what I used. I just love this dish so much because it packs so much flavor and looks so impressive, yet it’s so easy to make!

It’s colorful, fresh, and healthy, and guaranteed to please a crowd. If you are not into raw fish, try it with cooked salmon or another cooked tender fish. It won’t be the same dish (can’t call it a poke bowl, sorry), but I’m sure it’ll be delicious as well.
